Jim DeFede, author of The Day the World Came to Town, the inspiration for the hit Broadway musical, Come From Away, was our November "Bookaccino Live" Book Group guest. The Day the World Came to Town tells a true story of untold events from September 11th. When United States airspace closed, 38 jetliners were forced to land in Gander, a small town in Newfoundland. Residents of Gander welcomed “the plane people” warmly, even as the population of the town swelled to nearly twice its size. The visitors were met with grace and helpfulness, in an example of the best side of human nature. Carol Fitzgerald, who hosts this discussion, confesses that for years she could not talk about this book without getting emotional. With this opportunity for a live book group discussion, Jim DeFede dove deep into his 20-year-old book, including how he came to write it. He shares his thoughts on Come From Away, the hit Broadway musical. If you haven't read The Day the World Came to Town or seen the Broadway musical, Come From Away, know that there's plenty to learn here to inspire you to want to read it and discuss it with your group.

The musical Come From Away, on stage at Walton Arts Center through the weekend, involves real events connected to the terrorist attacks of September 11th. But the themes of community in the production seem appropriate for 2021, too. We talk with Harter Clingman, a member of the cast, about the show.
Come From Away opened at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville Tuesday, Oct. 26 to open the 2021-22 Broadway season. Actor Julie Johnson joins Assistant Features Editor Jocelyn Murphy to talk about returning to the road, the moving musical and the true stories that inspired it. On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, the United States airways were closed to all incoming flights, leading to some 7,000 passengers on 38 planes diverting to the tiny town of Gander, Newfoundland. Come From Away shares the stories of these strangers brought together from around the world and the islanders who took them in for five days following the tragedy.

One of the very first guests on Mamas Talkin' Loud, Pearl Sun, rejoined Cara and Jess a month ago to talk about her unexpected return to Broadway. From resuming 8 shows a week after spending more time than she ever has with her son Max, to her anxiety about moving through the city as an Asian American, her emotions ran the gamut. However, she looked toward the reopening of Come From Away with more hope than hesitation, and most importantly compassion for herself and others. Find more info about the podcast via BPN.fm/mamas.

It's finally starting to feel like fall, from film festivals to kids returning to school (and hopefully getting vaccinated if they're old enough), and we're here with all the reviews and news for you on Breakfast All Day. Christy, Alonso and Matt discuss the Zoom-era charmer “Language Lessons,” the documentary “Fauci,” Paul Schrader's latest “The Card Counter,” and “Come From Away,” the joyous filmed production of the celebrated Broadway musical. And in a very different kind of segment — which we'll do again if you guys like it — we revisit the truly bonkers David Bowie puppet musical “Labyrinth,” which is having a Fathom Events re-release for its 35th anniversary. In news, we discuss the heartbreaking death of Michael K. Williams at just 54, the Toronto and Venice film festivals (and the red carpet return of Bennifer), The White House requiring government employees and contractors to get vaxxed, that deliciously bitchy Los Angeles Times story about Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, “Shang-Chi” star Simu Liu‘s hilarious stock photo modeling history, the emotional Steve from “Blue's Clues” video and Bob Odenkirk‘s return to “Better Call Saul” after his heart attack. And over at our Patreon, we recap the latest “Ted Lasso” episode, which was both heartwarming and a gut punch. Thanks for joining us during this jam-packed week, and hope you're healthy and well.

Welcome to the rock! We were very excited to be invited by Apple TV+ to get an advance stream of the Broadway hit musical turned movie, Come From Away. Craig, Brandon and Anna give a non-spoiler overview of the film, and also share their own personal reflections on the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001. This story of human kindness and hope lands on Apple TV+ September 10. "Come From Away is based on the true story of when the isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small town turned in to an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander's air strip on September 11, 2001. Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we're all part of a global family."
